The Warrior Spirit Lives On
History comes alive on Wednesday, March 28 as Terra Cotta Army returns in
Warriors, Tombs, and Temples

WHAT: Hot on the heels of Terra Cotta Warriors, the Houston Museum of Natural Science is proud to feature Warriors, Tombs, and Temples, opening Friday, March 30 to the public. The exhibition features four of the famous life-size Terra Cotta Warriors, protectors of China ’s First Emperor Qin Shihuang, whose mausoleum complex is considered the eighth wonder of the world.

This time, patrons will see a greater length of Chinese history represented in Warriors, Tombs, and Temples than in Terra Cotta Warriors. Thanks to new conservation techniques, the paint on the warriors’ garments and armor is now clearly visible and there are unexpected touches—premiering in this exhibition is the strangest of all—a Terra Cotta Warrior whose face is painted green.

The exhibition includes 200 incredibly preserved ancient works of art featuring newly-discovered artifacts unearthed from imperial, royal and elite tombs and from beneath Buddhist monasteries in and around the capital cities of three great dynasties, all located near the modern city of Xi’an in Shaanxi Province. These are Xianyang, the capital city during the Qin dynasty (221 – 206 BCE), Chang’an, the capital city during the Western or Former Han (206 BCE – 8 CE) and the Tang (618 – 907 CE) dynasties.

*The event wouldn’t be complete without a little surprise. As an added bonus, history will come alive during this photo opportunity. You definitely won’t want to miss it.*

WHO: Dirk Van Tuerenhout , Curator of Anthropology, Houston Museum of Natural Science

WHEN: Wednesday, March 28, 10 a.m.

WHERE: The Houston Museum of Natural Science, 5555 Hermann Park Drive, 77030

HOW: Contact Melodie Wade at (713) 639-4743 or Sami Mesarwi at (713) 639-4722 or come to Museum Services for assistance.

WHY: “The objects in the exhibition are drawn from three of the greatest and most important dynasties in Chinese history: the Qin, Han, and Tang dynasties,” explains Van Tuerenhout. “What visitors will see in this exhibit differs from our previous one, Terra Cotta Warriors in two significant ways. This exhibit displays objects from three – rather than one – dynasties. The time period covered is therefore also more extensive. Instead of reviewing 20 years of history, this exhibit spans 1,100 years. Moreover, some of the Qin-era Terra Cotta Warrior statues shown in Warriors, Tombs, and Temples are recent discoveries; they were excavated while our previous show was here.”

The Houston Museum of Natural Science—one of the nation’s most-heavily attended museums—is a centerpiece of the Houston Museum District. With four floors of permanent exhibit halls, including the Wortham Giant Screen Theatre, Cockrell Butterfly Center , Burke Baker Planetarium and George Observatory and as host to world-class and ever-changing touring exhibitions, the Houston Museum has something to delight every age group. With such diverse and extraordinary offerings, a trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, located at 5555 Hermann Park Drive in the heart of the Museum District, is always an adventure.
